Last week, a rumor suggested that the HTC M7, the company’s 1080p Android that we’re hoping will be publicly revealed next week on February 19, would actually arrive as the HTC One. That info came from a very reliable tipster, but any rumor is a lot nicer when you can add a little confirmation to help back it up, and now we have what looks like some pretty compelling evidence in support of the HTC One name, in the form of a UAProf file from HTC itself.
The UAProf for HTC’s model PN071 clearly identifies the handset as the HTC One. The presence of specs like a 1920 x 1080 resolution makes it feel quite possible that this could be the same M7 we’ve been talking about so far.
Although, with today’s leaked render not matching recent photos purporting to show the M7, we’re still dealing with the possibility that we’re looking at two different phones here – maybe a Butterfly/Droid DNA situation – since if that grille-heavy model really is the HTC One, then what was the other Sense 5-running model in those pics? A prototype, perhaps, but maybe HTC has two new 1080p handsets in the pipeline.
